Kyle Seager Retires from Baseball

After 11-seasons in Major League Baseball, all with the Seattle Mariners, the 34-year old third baseman announced his retirement Wednesday. And the way he did it was hallmark to the man he is. No fanfare. No grandiose goodbye. He just had his wife post a simple note from Kyle on her Twitter account.

In three simple sentences, Seager wrote, “Today I’m announcing my retirement from Major League Baseball. Thank you to all of my family, friends and fans for following me throughout my career. It’s been a wonderful ride but I am unbelievably excited for the next chapter of my life.”

Seager became a free agent after a season in which he had career highs with 35-home runs and 101-RBI’s.
